For those interested I recorded another brew day, with a few extra things people were asking for clarification on. I had the grain cracked at 1.5mm this time and lost 10% efficiency (75%) so I will go back to 1.2mm where I get 85% + everytime.

Manually venting pump! It's what was causing my pump break problems. Works like a charm now I tilt it to 45 dg and switch the pump on and off

:lol: :lol: You noticed........ :lol: :lol: It was very early in the morning and my kids were asleep in the next room. Lucky you could not see what I was or was not wearing, as I just woke up about 30 seconds before I started filming.

Yes the manuel pump vent appears to be the magic bullet I think. Even after 3 or 4 quick turns on/off there was some small bubbles coming up. The instructions do make a big point of this, so maybe those Gemans know something.
So based on that I am going back to a "very fine" Grain crack next time. That was with a 1.5mm crack = 75% efficiecny, I was getting 85%+ with 1.2mm and that was repeated many times. But just to complete the test next brew I will get cracked at 0.9mm. LHBS says other BM users get the super fine crack and have no problems.
